A note from Andrea: Yoga teacher Chrissy Carter is my guest on episode 12 of Yogaland, which launches next Tuesday. In addition to being an amazing yoga teacher — she has taught 25 yoga teacher trainings for YogaWorks over the past decade — Chrissy is an avid cook. She was kind enough to share her sweet, simple lemonade recipe to keep you cool and refreshed this summer.
Chrissy’s Minty Lemonade
Makes 6-8 servings
This drink is my happy place. There’s nothing better on a hot summer day than an ice cold glass of lemonade. The refreshing and totally satisfying combination of tangy and sweet hits the spot every time. The mint elevates the flavor of this old fashioned summer drink into a very special summer treat.
1 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemons (approximately the juice of 6 lemons)
1 cup sugar
6 cups water
2 cups mint leaves, tightly packed
Combine everything into a pitcher and stir together. Stir again before serving. Enjoy!
